Rocket® UniData

A MultiValue application platform for developing fast, flexible and secure applications

Organizations rely on Rocket® UniData, a best-in-class of the MultiValue application platform, for scalable business apps that can evolve as needs change. As a stable, secure, fast data server engine with high availability and low administrative overhead, Rocket UniData is ideal for rapid development using modern tools. On-premises or in the cloud, UniData serves nearly a million users worldwide.

Performance by design

Rocket UniData’s unique and resilient architecture delivers performance advantages compared to traditional SQL databases. UniData offers variable length records and tables within tables. This structure organizes data in a natural manner, which makes for easier database design, eliminating the constraints of SQL normalization. It’s also faster than many other databases, as UniData has direct-read capabilities that result in fewer I/O operations than required by SQL. The efficient data access and dynamic allocation of available computing resources help UniData maximize throughput across all tiers of your implementation.

Because records in UniData have variable length, less data is transmitted within the entirety of the system. Less data transmitted means mobile applications are more responsive, replication (for disaster recovery, high availability and more) is more efficient, and the performance of your applications is not bogged down by excessive movement of data.

Rocket UniData runs on a variety of Microsoft Windows®, and UNIX platforms including RedHat Linux®, IBM AIX®, and others.

What’s New in Rocket UniData 8.2

New and enhanced features with UniData 8.2 expand possible solutions for your ever-changing requirements:

  • Enhanced audit logging helps you document compliance with regulatory and internal SLA requirements
  • Python language support gives your developers the ability to code using this popular open source language
  • Support for Rocket Discover, a collaborative business intelligence solution to help your business users get the most out of your UniData application data

Rapid development means rapid returns

UniData includes multiple, easy-to-use programming languages (including Python) with multiple standard supplied interfaces (Node.js, .NET, Java, ODBC, JDBC, RESTful via JSON) for multi-tier solutions. Accelerate your teams’ productivity by selecting the best development tools based upon your staff’s capabilities.

The MultiValue Application Platform accelerates the speed of application development allowing you to respond quickly to new requests from the business or technical teams. And because the MultiValue Application Platform is so stable and efficient, most customers find they can easily manage UniData with a lean DB Admin staff.

Security is paramount

Rocket embeds the most effective security standards for encryption technology deep within the data server, so your data is secure no matter its location, and whether in-transit or stored on disk.

SSL/TLS secures connections to the MultiValue server and encrypts data in transit for protection from snooping or eavesdropping. Third parties can also validate and accredit our cryptographic modules for FIPS 140-2 compliance.

Automatic data encryption ensures only trusted users with the encryption key can view data. Stolen data is rendered useless without the encryption key.

UniData also offers role-based security for users accessing the application. Required DBA maintenance to implement and maintain these capabilities is simple and efficient.

Auditing capabilities within UniData provide traceability and proof of actions, assisting with compliance documentation for regulations such as HIPAA/HITECH and Sarbanes-Oxley. Audit logs cannot be changed once written, providing complete audit trails to external auditors. Auditing policies can be modified “on the fly” (by authorized personnel only) without restarting the database. You can trap and trace attacks or data misuse originating internally or externally to your organization when they occur.

High Availability/Disaster Recovery

To ensure business continuity in the event of planned and unplanned outages, your applications and data need to be protected and recoverable. Rocket UniData HA/DR solutions were designed help you recover from an outage quickly and with minimal business impact. Using a publisher/multiple-subscriber model, UniData HA/DR replication is flexible, easy to understand, and easy to maintain. HA/DR solutions can even be configured with delays to protect from inadvertent operations mistakes.
